Thursday, October 28, 2010 N/Warren Town and County News ! Page Seven Guilty Plea In Juvenile Case Wednesday, Oct. 20, Daniel Nadler entered a guilty plea to involuntary manslaugh- ter in Warren County Juvenile Court. He admitted that his reckless actions caused the death of James Doyle. Nadler .was found guilty by Judge Richard Clogg and placed in Woodward Academy. He will be under the supervision of Juvenile Court Services until July 12, 2013, his 18 m birthday, as. provided for in the Iowa Code. When a young person under t8 years of age is accused of a serious criminal of- fense, such as murder, the County Attorney must decide whether to ask the Juvenile Court to transfer, or waive; the case to the Adult Court. In this case, Daniel Nadler was charged with Murder and a motion wa.s filed asking that he be tried as an adult. The motion is filed within tefi (10) days of the date the child was charged with the delinquent act: In this case, due t.othe seriousnessof the act, the motion to waive was filed. After a two-day hearing on the motion for jurisdiction the Juvenile Court Judge entered a ruling denying the motion and the case remained in the Juvenile Court. Daniel Nadler was found guilty of committing a delinquent act, which is, any public offense/criminal act that if committed by a person over 18 would be a crime. " -8"- Juvenile Court differs from the Adult Court in that, all crimes, regardless of the se- verity, are 'considered delinquent acts and can result in an out of home placement until the child reaches the age of 18. The Courts further differ in that the goal of the Juvenile Court is not to just punish, but instead to provide services to rehabilitate the child while protecting the piblic. Whether the charge pled to is murder or man- slaughter, the:juvenile Court has jurisdiction overDaniel Nadler unffl.the day he turns age 18.and no longer: This case is truly a tragedy A young boy is dead and the families have been terri- bly traumatized as a result. The County Attorney and staff recognize how emotion- ally and physically exhausting the Juvenile Justice System has been for the families. The County Attorney's Office understands that. as a result of this tragic event the families and countless other friends and acquaintances, lives have been changed for- ever. We express our condolences to all. 1. Communication 2. Cooperation 3. Connectivity 1. EXperience 2. Time 3. Dedication Paid by Yordi for supervisor committee '6,'2- ,/'" ..a
